Yeah, I understand that. My concern was that the water seemed to get fairly hot still with not much flow. What's the standard running temp on an l28?

Depends on your thermostat temp; Mines around 85ish degrees? sits just over half on the gauge. If you can get a infra-red non contact temp gun, aim at the thermostat housing or rad hose and check.

I got all the Exterior lights working tonight. Found the temp gauge sender wire and started wiring new style terminals in for the connections.

Got alot of the primer down today. I do need to rub it back a little to get it nice and smooth. But its great to see it one colour at last. I need to paint the back of the doors and hatch and get some colour on the door jams.

Got the inside of the doors and hatch primed now. Going to go over the whole outside of the car again with a couple of layers of primer for consistency. I also mounted my new mirrors, which of course will have to come of for paint, but I needed the wholes in there before the paint goes on.

I could use some help to align the hatch, its to far over on the passenger side and I cant move it across with the adjustment bolts.

Started to paint the engine bay. I am going with a satin black and will paint the grill in the same colour. I cleared out the passenger side of the bay and roughed it up and hit it with the satin. Also the radiator was removed and I am spraying the area where the hinges are too. I will empty out the drivers side of the bay and get that done tonight.

My Z is now in one piece more or less.
Brakes work, headlights work, tail lights work, doors open and close.
Its just in primer and satin black. So, I am now on the path to getting it roadworthy and registered.
I will finish up my interior this weekend and hopefully I can take it on a test run to the meet next week.
I am going to paint it once I move, so no need to stress about me leaving it in primer.

Cheers guys! I am doing all the work myself bar the chasis straightening. I paid someone to do that. Lol. I guess the black would be hard to paint in a gloss, but this is just a satin made specially for engine bays and what not, you don't need a clear on it. It is a 2k though. The underside of my bonnet is mint, the top not so much, only because of the old rust and bog. I am covering it in vinyl though.

Stivva, who did your chassis straightening? What was involved and how much?

Thanks.

any good crash shop should be able to do it. I do it at work all the time on crashed falcadores and camrys.
How much $$ would  depend on how many hours the job would take.
If its only a tweak it might take an hour or two to set up and and 10 minutes to straighten

Ask what sort of straightening rack the shop has, If they say global jig or caroliner, they are the better option. If they say floor rack then they will be limited in the adjustments they can make

Mine took them a day. It was done by Blackwell Bodyworks in Pakenham and cost me $1500.
They had to straighten the car out with the rack, do some cutting and welding and pull out the nose panel that the hinges mount to.

They did a good job and I am happy with the result.

Sound deadener in the rear of the car is not done, and the spare tyre is in too!
Which marks the first car I have had in 6 years to feature a spare, talk about being on the up and up!
I am going to put all the rear plastics and vinyls back in and then make up my false floor and spare wheel cover.
